Merion Golf Club – Ardmore, PA
The US Open is always known for its hard courses and pedestrian scores. Merion proved to be no different, with its historic wicker baskets instead of flagsticks. American Express worked with Live Sports Radio to provide 50,000 radios for fans. With attendance limited to only 25,000 per day, the majority of fans each day got to listen to ESPN radio as Justin Rose held off Phil Mickelson to win. With the help of our radios, cheers could be heard throughout the course as each shot meant so much more coming down the stretch.
